It's amazing how Baywatch-ready Pamela Anderson still is 19 years later
Pamela Anderson is back on the beach. As is only fitting, the star of the former Baywatch series has joined the much-hyped film, as announced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on Instagram today.
"She introduced the world to 'CJ Parker' and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation — for the most successful TV show of all time," Johnson captioned his photo. "A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast."
Can we take a moment to appreciate how little has changed for Anderson in the past 15 years? The original series has been off the air since 2001, but Anderson's iconic look is as beach-ready as ever. She joins Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra and Kelly Rohrbach (who plays C.J. Parker) in the film, set to be released in May 2017. Her original fellow lifeguard David Hasselhoff has also signed on to appear in the reboot. Let's hope we get to see a tag-team rescue.
No word yet on what role she'll play in the film or if she has more than a cameo. Need another reason to see Baywatch? Here are a few things we can expect in the film, according to Johnson: "Rated R comedy, hard core action, beautiful ass kicking women, the unforgiving and majestic ocean, Zac's 17 pack abs." Is it too early to pre-order?
